Arrived early, finished early. Test drove the vehicle after he finished installing the new disk brake pads. Great Job!

God must be playing a joke on me! Best Mechanic Experience to date. I logged on to YourMechanic because as usual some man said he'll put the brakes on and then realized all he would get is the money owed to him and nothing else, so, of course, he flaked. I sat on my couch, looked up and said "That's it, God! The real men like President Obama, Dr. Creflo Dollar and Steve Harvey must be some type of illusion. They must be some type of fluke that only exist on TV. That's it God, all men are...(you can imagine the rest)." But then, Alex showed up. Unfortunately, I wrongly anticipated the absolute worst, but to my surprise, I got the quintessential best. It was almost surreal. He was genuinely polite (in Miami this is rare). No really, like polite and professional for no reason at all, just because he is obviously a true professional. He showed his ID when I asked and it didn't seem to bother him at all that I asked (like some people I know). He also patiently answered all of my inquiries. He handled the parts of my car like they were his and then I was really stunned when I came outside and he cleaned up! No, not regular clean up. Not "man-version" clean up (no shade to all the meticulous men out there whose Mama and Grandma didn't play the radio, please keep it up). No, I mean he put stuff back in the right boxes...(hello somebody), closed the boxes back (take the wheel, Lord!), cleaned the driveway of every nut, bolt, screw or whatever they are called (Pass the bucket and let's do a building fund offering! Hallelujah!). Best of all, I felt so comfortable (i.e. he did not crack nasty jokes or try to hit on me). When he drove off, I looked up to the sky again, but this time I said "I hear you God, the joke's on me!"

First let me preface this by saying I didn't even know this kind of service existed until after doing a research but I guess it's now becoming more and more popular and that the service is getting a lot more broader. In any case here's my story. Car just started squealing which I'm pretty sure it's the brake pads since I've gone through this before. I started canvassing 3 local indy shops for price since I'm working on a budget. All 3 shops were just too expensive and ranges anywhere from $150-$200+! After doing a little more google research I stumbled upon "Yourmechanic". Was skeptical since I wasn't unaware this type of service was being offered. Used their website which is pretty straight forward, popped in my zip code and Lucas came up which looks like he's got some pretty good reviews. So I gave this a try and it's been exactly one week since Lucas did the service on my brake pad and I'm happy to say it's been great!! Lucas did a fantastic job and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for service on their car. But the kicker part was the price! Yourmechanic will give you straight pricing and NO hidden fees! And they were cheaper than the other 3 shops I was quoted on! Needless to say I'll be using their service again should something come up! Thanks again Lucas!

Brake Pad Replacement Service

What are brake pads and how do they work?

Brake pads consist of friction material that is bonded to a sturdy steel backing plate. When you push on the brake pedal, the friction material on the brake pads is forced against the inner and outer surfaces of the steel brake rotor under tremendous pressure. The resulting friction causes the wheels on your car to slow rapidly allowing for a quick, safe and controlled stop. After thousands of miles, this friction material eventually wears away, and the brake rotor wears away as well, requiring replacement.

Brakes-Service

When to replace brake pads?

Here are several indications that you need new brake pads:

  • Wear indicator on vehicle dashboard. When the friction material on the brake pads is worn to within 2 mm of the pad backing plate, replacement of the pads is necessary. Most newer cars today have electronics built into the brake pad. When the pad is at a point that it needs to be replaced, a symbol will appear on your vehicle dashboard’s instrument cluster. Consult your owner’s manual to learn what the symbol looks like.
  • High pitched squeal when braking. When the friction material on the pads is worn close to the backing plate, you may hear a squealing or squeaking noise as you drive regardless of whether you are applying the brakes or not. That squealing or squeaking noise is designed to make you aware that the brake pads are getting low and need to be inspected. If all of the friction material on the brake pad has been worn away, you will hear grinding and scraping noises when you apply the brakes. Pad replacement is mandatory at this point and the vehicle is unsafe to drive until corrected.
  • Brake pedal pulsation or vehicle vibration. Over time, brake rotors may develop excessive thickness variation (>.001 inches), excessive runout on the wheel hub (> .002 inches), or the brake rotor may warp due to high operating temperatures. If these defects exist, you may notice pulsation in the brake pedal or steering wheel during braking. New pads and rotor resurfacing or replacement will be required if the rotor has any of the above-mentioned deficiencies.
  • Vehicle pulling or wandering on braking. If your car pulls to the right or left during braking, that could be a sign of a sticking brake caliper, misalignment of the suspension, and sometimes tire defects or uneven tire inflation from side-to-side. The mechanic who inspects your vehicle will determine if new brake pads alone will resolve the issue or if other repairs are needed.
  • High mileage on existing pads. Regardless of whether any of the above brake system symptoms occur, every 10,000 miles a mechanic should measure the thickness of the remaining friction material on the brake pads and perform a thorough visual inspection of the braking system.
  • Brake system warning lights and/or maintenance reminder messages. Should your brake system warning light ever illuminates, or a brake system related maintenance reminder message appears in the driver information display, have your vehicle inspected and repaired as soon as possible.

How do mechanics replace brake pads?

Normally, pad replacement requires these steps:

  • Confirm the thickness of the remaining friction material on the brake pads. If the remaining friction material is less than 2 mm in thickness, pad replacement is warranted.
  • Visually inspect the brake rotor surface that contacts the pad (for scoring, pitting, grooves, rust) and measure the brake rotor with precision tools for thickness variation, run-out and warpage.
  • Inspect the caliper, torque plate, pads, and rotors to determine if the caliper is operating freely (i.e., inspect for stuck calipers).
  • Install new pads and any additional recommended components (e.g., rotors, if rotors depart from OEM specifications) only with customer approval of course.
  • Lubricate brake system components, such as caliper sliding pins, and inspect the condition of the brake fluid. Top off brake fluid as required.
  • Perform a basic 50 point safety inspection of your vehicle.
  • Finally, the mechanic will test drive your vehicle to confirm normal operation of the brake system.

Is it safe to drive with a brake pad problem?

Driving a vehicle with a known deficiency in the braking system is unsafe and consequently is not recommended. Worn out brake pads can increase stopping distances and so for your safety, it is always advised that worn out brake pads be replaced promptly. Further driving is not recommended and you should request service at your earliest convenience if any of the following circumstances exist: stopping distances are much greater than what you are accustomed to; the brake pedal is not firm or is low; there is loss of braking power assist; the vehicle pulls severely to one side on braking; or the brake system warning light is on.

If you detect unusual noises, such as squealing or grinding, but stopping distances are close to what you are used to, and the brake pedal is firm, and there are no warning lights, it may be safe to proceed to your destination but schedule service at your earliest convenience. When it comes to the brakes on your vehicle, always err on the side of caution and have a mechanic check your brake pads and braking system at the first indication of a problem.

When replacing brake pads keep in mind:

Brake pads must always be replaced as a set, that is both wheels (driver and passenger side) on an axle, front or rear, must be serviced. If brake pads on only one side of the car were replaced, your car might pull to one side when you apply the brakes. Often, resurfacing or replacement of the brake rotors is necessary and a competent mechanic will always measure for wear and damage to the brake rotors and advise you as to whether rotor replacement or re-surfacing is needed.
